I have time today,
As a black woman who has gets asked these questions almost weekly, I am going to say this for the one time:
Do not ask to touch my hair.
Do not ask me about the “n” word and if it is “ok” for YOU to use it.
Do not ask me why black lives matter and all lives “don’t”.
Do not ask me if my “father” is present in my life.
Do not ask me if ANYTHING that you feel is discriminatory to come out of your mouth to ask a question.
Do not tell me about my own posts on black culture, such as this.
If you’re curious go research, truly research the meanings of why these stereotypical questions are truly offensive.
My life is far to busy to be asked such questions.
Becoming an adult and seeing the “real world”, I’m starting to understand why being a person of color is a struggle within itself.
I’m tired of it,
Thank you. 🧘🏾♀️
